Thermo Light


OK, the closest I’ve been to Baffin Island was a trans-Atlantic flyover, but that doesn’t mean I like being cold in the mountains here, in Colorado . . . or anywhere. Part of the company’s autumn line, the MARMOT BAFFIN JACKET ($150, has become a trusted, smooth-moving winter companion. It’s light, thanks to 15-denier shell fabric; and is down-fill warm, courtesy of the water-resistant Primaloft® Sport insulation. Other niceties: zippered Napoleon and hand pockets, reflective logos, elastic cuffs, and an interior draw-cord hem. A killer middle or outer layer, the Baffin rolls into a footlong-sub-sized bundle for easy packing. Colors are Black, Citronelle, Gargoyle, Rocket Red, and Vapor Blue; sizes XS to XL.
